I bought a starter kit with South Beach Smokes because their electronic cigarette kits were on special offer at the time. They say it’s a better smoking alternative than tobacco cigarettes and as a heavy smoker who enjoys a good smoke, I was quite cynical about this. I’ve tried many other products that claimed to be just as good as real cigarettes, but none of them could reproduce the sheer pleasure you get from smoking. These e-cigarettes seemed different as you could still smoke but without the nasty side-effects of tobacco like tar and without spreading second-hand smoke everywhere.
The thing that really sold it for me was that e-cigarettes can be enjoyed in public, whereas before I’d have to go outside for a cig break all the time, especially after a meal or whilst I was having a few pints with friends. Electronic cigarettes are not banned in public, so I didn’t have to stand on my own in the pouring rain and I could smoke in the presence of others no problem.
Did I enjoy South Beach Smokes?
I have to say that it takes a bit of getting used to and I wasn’t sure at first, but as I persevered I found myself really enjoying the taste. It also hits the back of your throat just like an ordinary cigarette. It looks the same and you use it in the same way, so for me it satisfied all my cravings, gave my hands something to do and was a really pleasant smoke. The only disadvantage is when the battery fails and you realise you don’t have a spare.
I chose a starter pack because it had everything I needed, including those all important spare batteries, a charger and cartridges which come in your choice of flavour.
What’s in the South Beach Smokes Deluxe Starter Kit?
The Deluxe Starter Kit has pretty much everything you need and is a good price. I’d recommend it for light smokers. However I went for the Deluxe Plus Starter Kit for the simple reason that it had a USB charger and a car adapter for it. As I smoke in the car this was great for charging your battery on the go. Heavy smokers need to have the convenience of being able to smoke anywhere so the portable USB charger is essential. I also got a carry case which fits into my back pocket and stops me from sitting on my e-cigs all the time!
For those who are trying e-cigs for the first time I’d recommend the disposable e-cigarette packs as you don’t need to assemble them or charge the batteries, you can just throw them away once they’re done. This will give you a good indication if these e-cigs are for you or not. I had tried a couple of these before buying my starter kit, just to test them.
Inside the Deluxe Starter Kit you get:
- 1 Standard Battery - NEW SuperMAXTM Battery
- 1 Extra-Capacity Battery - NEW SuperMAXTM Battery
- 1 Portable Wall Charger
- 5 Large Nicotine Cartridges/Atomizers – Equals 7-8 Packs of Cigarettes (Choice of Flavor & Strength).
Buy South Beach Smokes online
You can buy any of South Beach Smokes’ starter kits or other products from their website. Whether you are in the USA, the UK or even Australia they have many international shipping options for you to choose from.
I checked on other websites like Amazon and eBay but the best place to buy these from is directly from South Beach Smokes.
I had compared a few e-cigarette starter packs before buying and these seemed to be the cheapest whilst still looking like they were high quality. I was really pleased with them. I’ve not touched a tobacco cigarette since using these and I’m saving loads of money as a result. I’ll definitely be recommending them!
